Experience Agra, India

REQUEST QUOTE

Agra is a city in northern India’s Uttar Pradesh state. It's home to the iconic Taj Mahal, a mausoleum built for the Mughal ruler Shah Jahan’s wife, Mumtaz Mahal (who died in childbirth in 1631). The imposing main building features a massive dome and intricately carved white marble inlaid with precious stones. This is set behind a reflecting pool inside a courtyard defined by 4 minarets.Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyay Airport is a military airbase and public airport serving the city of Agra, in the state of Uttar Pradesh, India. 

Although the city has become synonymous with the world famous Taj Mahal, there’s more to Agra than this fascinating architectural wonder. In fact, there is an emperor’s wealth of things to do in Agra, especially for those who love history, nature and wildlife.

With three UNESCO World Heritage Sites (the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri), Agra is a haven for history lovers. In fact, the city is as old as India’s ancient epic tale, the Mahabharata.

It originally became famous as Akbarabād, when the Mughal ruler Sultan Sikandar Lodī made it the capital of the Mughal Empire from 1556 to 1658. Having undergone many changes after the decline of the Mughal Empire, it fell under the influence of Marathas and then the British Raj.

For nature and wildlife lovers, the city (part of India’s “golden triangle” tourism circuit) offers an array of botanical gardens to explore and wildlife rescue/rehabilitation facilities you can visit.

Local NGO Wildlife SOS even has a volunteer program working with amazing animals such as Sloth Bears and Asian Elephants. Volunteers stay in a beautiful area of the SOS sanctuary, surrounded by birds and animals and all proceeds help to fund their conservation efforts.

Address: 59/10, VIP Road, Agra, Uttar Pradesh 282001, India. Code: AGR. Elevation: 1,808′.
